‘The Magic of Science and Nature’: Workshop by Leaps and Bounds
Why does a balloon blow up when you put it over a bottle full of vinegar and baking soda?
The students trying vinegar for the first time. They couldn’t believe they had just tasted an acid!
How does a ball continue rotating in a jar in mid air?
Now the students know how the motorcyclists at the circus manage to ride 360 degrees in a sphere.
How does Solar Energy work?
Students measuring the output of a solar panel and examining a solar pocket fan
What effect does heat have on different colours?
Trying to figure out why the little fan rotates
How can a skewer go through a balloon and not burst it?
Marvelling at the fact that the balloon didn’t burst!
Can you answer all these questions? Our students at the E-Base can!
Pepper, water and soap- All you need to learn one of the most important concepts: Surface tension.
We ditched learning about Surface tension, Centrifugal Force, Inertia and many other concepts by reading a drab text book. Instead, the students became doctors for the day! The examined, investigated and made hypothesizes.
Examining different objects under a microscope
They learnt some of the most basic concepts of science in the most entertaining manner!
These photos do all the talking:
Making a lava lamp
The students couldn’t get enough of it!
Understanding surface tension with the help of water, dropper and a penny. One of the students managed to put 27 drops on one of his pennies!
